Staging your home in North Port, Florida is all about selling a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your present home as their next house.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your house. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll ensure your home is neutral and that it's friendly, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider renting furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.
